Default More tales on the Tailkit

I flew the 14A prototype at the factory about two weeks ago. Of course I asked about both the empennage kit status and the taildragger. The prototype sported the new elevator, a result of trying to refine the pitch response, due to The Boss' dissatisfaction with same. The elevator now has a "fat" trailing edge, about 3/8" thick. The other delaying factor was upon doing the static testing, it was found that the tail structure needed additional beefing up to handle the increased requirements of the taildragger version.
